Last week, we shared with you a historical moment in the city of Minot the raising of the LGBTQ+ flag.
During that ceremony, an inappropriately sized rainbow flag was displayed in front of City Hall.
According to 4 U.S. Code § 7, when other flags are displayed with the American flag, the American flag should be larger.
After many calls about the situation, Mayor Shaun Sipma addressed the issue Tuesday night at the city council meeting.
“That was something that I should have absolutely checked on prior to raising. However, the issue was identified immediately. The flag was then lowered until the proper size of the flag was found,” said Mayor Sipma.
During the public appearance section of the meeting, there were a number of people who vocally expressed their opposition.
